In this process, she helps them build the underlying skills necessary to live a more independent and fulfilling life.

Since moving to Utah, Patrice has fallen deeply in love with the outdoors. You can find her (not yet skillfully) hiking, camping, mountain-biking, and snowboarding on her days off. She also enjoys reading, knitting, and spending time with her boyfriend and his family dogs Charlie and TJ.
